I have a 2000 (w) 306 HDI dturbo that is very noisy when accellerating. Peugeot have diagnosed this as a voisy EGR valve, and aparantly is a known problem. Thing is, when the problem was discovered, Peugeot modified the valve to use a rubber/plastic head rather than a metal one, so the springs inside didnt make such a noise, but then changed suppliers a couple of months after and they were back to the same problem.
Peugeot can no longer help me, as the only replacement EGR valves they can get have metal tops on them.
I have heard these valves can be safely disconnected - is this a simple job, and does it affect the engine in any way?
Any advice/comments greatly apreciated.
